Why Did the FDA Approve a Generic Version of this Dangerous Drug?


  • Actos – the brand name for a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes – is presently embroiled in thousands of lawsuits alleging that the drug causes severe side effects including heart failure, macular edema and bladder cancer.
  • Even so, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has gone ahead and approved Mylan Lab’s plan to sell a generic version of this dangerous drug (pioglitazone), justifying their reasoning by saying this gives patients “affordable treatment options.”
  • Actos works by helping to control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, but diabetes treatments focused solely on lowering blood sugar can actually worsen, rather than remedy, the underyling metabolic dysfunctions at the root of type 2 diabetes.
  • Type 2 diabetes arises from faulty leptin signaling and insulin resistance, and is therefore a fully preventable condition that can be controlled or reversed; the only known way to reestablish proper leptin and insulin signaling is through a proper diet and exercise program – there is no drug that can accomplish this.

 

until next time,

    You go girl. Give it all you’ve got and some people simply just don’t get it. You can only point people in the right direction and they have the choice to screw up if that is in fact what they choose. I can only hope others do not follow his lead.
